Referencing resources

Referencing is a standard convention in academic and professional communication, designed to inform the reader of where you found a piece of information you used in a piece of written work.

There are a number of referencing systems used at Flinders University, with certain systems being preferred in different academic disciplines. We have a number of guides and resources to help you when you're completing your assignments and assessment pieces.

Study guides

We provide a range of study guides designed to help students develop their academic abilities and skills, including:

Programs

Academic Preparation Program

The Academic Preparation Program has been developed to help get you off to the best possible start at Flinders. Each 50 minute session has been co-created by our academic staff and our students to give you the information and skills you will need while you are at University.

English Language Support Program (ELSP)

The ELSP has been developed to assist students who come from a non-English speaking background to improving their English, specifically in the academic context.

Pop-up seminars

Throughout the year, we offer a number of pop-up sessions to help you with a range of study skills, show you how to use different tools and help you get the most out of your studies.
